Pesky Ghost

 

I just moved into an apartment two weeks ago, finally out of the hood into a nice quiet gated complex. Our move in was smooth did not sense anything in our new place and then things started to happen. My son's door was the first sign, though he blamed it on the wind because the window was open, but when I opened his door I felt a cold chill and it was not chilly outside. I kept opening the door then I would walk back to the family room and then the door would close again until finally I threw my sons shorts at the bottom of the door so it wouldn't close.

This past Saturday I was looking for a cord for my computer as I wanted to use the internet. I looked in a couple of closets and then just decided to wait for my son to come back with his laptop. I did chores around the house, eventually went and sat on my back patio with a book and when I came back inside to change the laundry a black cord was sitting on the kitchen table. The cord was not the one that went with my computer but when I tried it, it fit my computer. I thanked the ghost I think that was my first mistake.

My dog though is taking the brunt of this, he must see the ghost and runs and hides from it. On early Monday morning, my dog got on the bed about 4 am, a few minutes later I woke to what seemed like a faint gunshot and then a few minutes after that I heard footsteps down the hallway, the dog low growled and low barked, but we both heard the steps. I went back to sleep and so did the dog.

On Monday morning I woke up and my bikini top was neatly laid out on the floor next to my closet doors which are mirrors. It was inside out, like if you were in the mirror and put it out it would face the right way on a person's body. That scared the crap out of me as I had thrown it on the floor the night before in a crumpled pile so it was arranged by the ghost sometime during the night.

Yesterday I read online on how to get rid of the ghost, so I asked it to leave last night, to go into the light that people were waiting for him or her. I asked more than once. I went to each room and asked the ghost sincerely to leave, that it was not invited into the house and it needed to go. Last night "Monday" there was no activity.

This morning Tuesday, the ghost moved my flip flop. It must see that I take the dog out in the morning with my flip flops on and it moved my shoe, except I wore my slippers out this morning, so I guess the joke was on the ghost. I took a shower and told the ghost after the shoe incident that I was going to get some holy water to cast it out. I noticed the curtains move in the shower and the fan wasn't on. When I got out of the shower, there were three scratch marks on the mirror through the mist of the shower. When I tried to wipe it with the towel, the scratches remained, it's like there were embedded in the mirror, eventually they faded away before I left for work this morning. But before I left I heard voices in my son's room and it sounded like two males talking, when I opened his door, there was of course nothing there and my son was sleeping.

I tried something last night; I put my tennis shoes by my bed in two different directions next to each other as some other person on line said that it will spook the ghost. I think it worked, but I am unsure, because when the ghost moved one of my flip flops this morning, it was in the kitchen and then thrown in my room. I put the flips flops in my room this morning the same way I had put my tennis shoes last night but when I went in my room this morning to turn off the light, one of the flip flops was turned back to the same direction of the other, so I think the shoe theory is not doing anything about the ghost and it's just playing with me.

I guess I will try sage and see if it cleanses the house. I don't want to piss the ghost off as I did this morning after I threatened it with holy water. I just signed a two lease on this place; I can live with the ghost if the occurrences are kept pretty moderate or simply ignore it. Unfortunately my story doesn't end here... This story will continue until I can find some way to reduce the occurrences, if it would just leave my dog alone, that would make me most happy.

My family has a physic ability and I have seen ghosts all of my life, but they usually are either trying to find their way and leave as quickly as they came. This one, this poses a problem, because I don't think they or it wants to leave. I wonder if the last tenant had the same problem. As long as this doesn't turn into paranormal activity like the movie, I will be a happy camper. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to anything. It doesn't scare me and I don't want to create negative activity, but I would like it to stop scaring my dog. Personally it can move all the things it wants to, but as long as it doesn't become threatening, then I will have to do something drastic.

I agree with some of the posters here. Lay down rules. Be firm with it. If the spirit is already there you can't make it go away but just tell it not to mess with anything. That is what I did with the ghost in our house. I lay down the rules since blessing the house 3 times and burning "kamangyan" incense did not make the spirits go away, well at least the house rules worked. This is just my opinion.

I am no expert on the paranormal, but from what I've read, if you are dealing with a spirit, the more you acknowledge and interact with it, the more inclined it will be to react. Kind of like dealing with a pest - ignore it long enough and it will eventually get bored and go away. Of course, it's not always that simple. Another thing is to not readily assume that everything that is out of the ordinary is paranormal. I've had plenty of inexplicable things happen to me over my 50+ years, many which I have chosen to basically shrug off. I figure if no harm has been done, what's the point of freaking myseslf out thinking that I am dealing with a ghost or what's worse, a demon. I have found that the strange occurences come and go. With any luck, this will be your situation. I certainly hope that it is and that you find some peace, whether or not you are dealing with the paranormal.

All of my statements still apply however...

Silene02,

Zzsgranny and lightningspirit are wise. If you have a 'spirit' there and it's not threatening you setting ground rules is not a bad thing to do.

As far as the shoes go... Pjod 'could' be right... Or as it seems it's only your flip flops being 'messed' moving them may be the most energy the spirit can muster at any one time... Or it's the only pair of shoes your dog likes to mess with. However most dogs I know tend to 'eat/chew' shoes to tiny pieces, not just move certain ones around.

The cord for the computer... A 'burst' of energy by the spirit so that it could get noticed by you...

Keep us posted.

Respectfully,

Rook

Johua 888: I'm not christian and I don't believe in demons and all that "satan" stuff. As far as I know, I know nothing... Specially of unseen things upon this earth and at last all humans are in the same position. We suppose many things, we think and believe many things and nothing is proved as to be certain.

Any way and back to this story, I would try to not focus so much in what is happening. When you pay too much attention to this kind of things it becomes worse because you are feeding it with your attention and energy.

I personally don't get a bad vibe from reading this story, it just sounds like a michevious spirit that is bored and wants to play games 😜
I've burnt sage in my place and let me tell you, after you burn it the house feels SO much clearer and open. Just make sure while you are burning it, have positive thoughts and if you want, say outloud that that is your house, and you don't want the spirit there anymore, and tell it to leave, but don't have a rude tone of voice.
I really hope it goes well for you.
Also, you can try googling people that cleanse houses in your area, I've heard that they can work really well too.
Good luck & take care

Unless you feel threatened and unwell all the time, I doubt this ghost means you any harm. Moving shoes and doors is not an aggressive behaviour so maybe it is a family member trying to get your attention? It could also possibly be a former occupant that doesn't know you exist as you are in its house too. Finding the cord for you is helpful so I wouldn't be frightened of it. You should definitely try to meditate and you may be able to communicate better with it as that is what I did in my old haunted house. And don't listen to religious freaks, I don't know why they come on this site. ❤

You have a point there. You said what exactly was on my mind ❤

I just did not bother to waste my energy explaining that. You said it better than I could of.

First of all, you need not worry about the dog, it will adjust once they bond. This spirit is not there to hurt you. It sounds as though you have an OCD spirit, this is common. You can sage the house, bless the house, etc. But, if this ghost calls this house "home" it will not leave. Just tell him the house is big enough for all of you and you're honored to live there. You can ask him to be a little more incognito around the dog. Believe it or not, spirits are very understanding. They are not always demons and angels. The Bible says on Judgement Day the dead will be called up into the Heavens. Which means, the spirits are here to stay. Good luck!

What makes you think these 'nature' spirits are also not demons or fallen angels? What is your source for that position?

Even among the fallen angels, there are different sizes, degrees and ranks. There are also different levels of wickedness and evil among them.

Some of the spirits are demons (the spirit hybrids of fallen angels and human women from the past, many of whom orginated likely before the flood and died in the flood). The demons have no bodies.

Some of the fallen angels are less wicked than others. The fallen angels are all shape shifters.

Only the 'shades' or 'shadows' that is, the spirits of the hybrids, ie the demons, that inhabit the earth, as God said they would, have no physical body, but yet hunger, thrist and lust like they did when they were alive. And, yes, they possess people because they seek a body to inhabit and to re experience what physical life was like. But, they are pure evil also and cannot constrain themselves when possessing someone, because evil is what they are.

Perhaps some of these less wicked fallen angels masquerade as the seemingly less harmful 'nature spirits'. But, in the end, they all are under the authority of Satan to do his bidding, which is leading as many humans as possible to hell.

Joshua888: Please! Why christians has to say inmediatly that an entity is a demon or a fallen angel as soon as you suspect that it isn't a ghost? There are plenty of other entities that has little to do with "demons" of the Bible. There are nature spirits all around us but we can't see them. Just sense them (some people are lucky and they can even see these entities)

mnypnny: Okay, here's what some of us do: lay down ground rules... Let this entity know that this is your house, and if they'd like to stay fine, but you do not want them harming or scaring any one in the household... That includes your pets...Otherwise, they can go... Be firm but respectful...

Keep us posted... Good luck 😊

I hate to ask the obvious...Isn't it more likely that your dog is the one moving your shoes around? Sorry, but doors do close on their own in my own house because of an inner draft not always felt, and pets and kids have a habit of misplacing my own shoes... Nothing paranormal is sticking out of your story for me.

Yes use the sage to cleanse the house. It probably inhabited the house for some time. The move probably disturbed it. This happens at times.

Please tell us if the pesky ghost left ❤

It's not a ghost of a human. It is a demon or a fallen angel. You need to repent of your family's involvment in the occult and your own sins. You need to submit to and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Only then will these 'ghosts' leave. If you do not, this situation will grow worse, and your eternal destiny will be at stake, with no chance of repentance.
